Trexel Names New Business Director
Experienced Plastic Technology Leader for Europe
Michael Ludwig becomes new Business Director Europe at Trexel and responsible for Europe. He takes over this task from Dr. Hartmut Traut, who will assume the role of Trexel's global collaboration as Trexel's Vice President International Relations at Trexel, Inc.
Michael Ludwig has been working in the injection molding industry for more than 24 years as a plastics engineer and was most recently Sales Manager at Synventive for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Brian Bechard, CEO & President of Trexel Inc., said: "Trexel continues to build on a dynamic growth in demand for physically foamed injection molded parts. Reasons for this dynamic growth are not only the known advantages of weight reduction, but also cost reductions in production and technical advantages such as lower clamping forces and energy savings. With his many years of experience in the hot runner sector and his professional skills, Michael Ludwig has excellent knowledge that is extremely important to Trexel."
The increased demand for the MuCell process not only affects the European market, it applies worldwide. In order to make this global demand successful outside Europe, Dr. Hartmut Traut, Vice President International Relations, Trexel Inc., will be actively promoting international collaboration and networking. "With his experience and his successful work in Europe, Hartmut Traut is predestined for this challenge," says Brian Bechard, "and we are pleased to have been able to win him over for this internationally important task." This is no longer just about classic foaming - i.e. the replacement of plastic by air - but rather the completely different way of constructing components. Trexel has already responded to this trend by founding the joint venture 2Limit.
